Where will Jordan Lyles spend 2011?

Yesterday, Jonathon Mayo of MLB.com chatted about the recently released top 50 prospect list. Jordan Lyles was the lone Astro prospect on the list. Here is a link to video that accompanied his placement on the list

Here is the question I asked during the chat and his reply.

appyastro: Do you think Jordan Lyles will spend more time in Triple-A or Houston this year?

Mayo: My gut says he starts the year in Triple-A (he didn't pitch there all that much last year), but he finishes it in the Astros' rotation. If you don't see him by the All-Star break, I'd be surprised.

If this is the case, it looks like he is the leading candidate to be the 10th former G-Stro to make it to the majors since the franchise moved here in 2004.
